The guest speaker at the weekly meeting of the Kiwanis Club of St. Bernard-Arabi on August 1 was local bee keeper, Dustin DuRapau of Bees”R” Us. Mr. DuRapau described the Life Cycle of Bee’s and the process of hive operations. Mr. DuRapau talked about the benefits of Bee’s like, 1 in 3 bights of food is Pollenated by Bee’s. Mr. DuRapau passed out information on the Health Benefits of Honey. Most interesting is that some stores sell man made Honey and only the Fresh or Raw Honey from Bee’s have the Health Benefits.
